Shaolin Temple in China is the best place to practice original kung fu and they are surely unrivaled, but the tickets cost much and the trip is difficult. The main target of Shaolin Temple Secular Disciples in Greece is to bring the real traditional training of Shaolin kung fu to the west, closer to the people who do not have the opportunity to travel to China or those who have traveled before and they want to do the same program in the west. %Greece is a wonderful place for this purpose since the weather conditions are similar to Song San mountain. In addition, they will supply qualified teachers from China, so the results will be the same.

One breakfast, one light & one main lunch
